There is no question that the planet is warming.
There is no question that there is a man-made component to global warming.
The really important questions are:
*How much has the planet warmed in the recent past?
*How much will the planet warm in the future?
*How much of the warming of the planet is due to human activity?
*What should we do about man-made global warming?
*What costs and benefits will be associated with anti-global warming measures, in the context of other serious problems facing mankind and the finite resources we can bring to bear on them?
I consider myself a contrarian, not a "skeptic" or a "denier."
If you are one of those people who think we must "just do something before it's too late," don't tell me I am no better than a Holocaust denier and expect me to join ranks with you.
If you are at all open to the contrarian side of the issues, I urge you to read Dr. Roy Spencer's new book "Climate Confusion" and Bjorn Lomborg's book "Cool It."
